A year after a fire destroyed the Billings Heights (Montana) branch, construction is underway on a new, state-of-the-art building.
The new 6,053 square-foot branch merges the traditional branch concept with improved digital technology. Customers can still interact with their trusted bankers, while enjoying increased options and conveniences regarding how they choose to bank.
“The new branch is built to anticipate changes in technology and banking trends so we can best serve the Billings Heights and surrounding areas,” said Tyler Crennen, Commercial Loan Manager in Billings Heights. “This model is exciting for us because it couples innovation with the time-honored level of superior service our clients have come to expect from First Interstate.”
A larger lot will allow for improved traffic flow, and expanded drive-up lanes will be outfitted to better serve larger vehicles, like trucks with trailers and SUVs. The high-performance building will be as energy efficient as possible, providing a comfortable, customer-friendly space that is both aesthetically pleasing and highly functional; project completion is slated for late 2018.
“We plan to be a part of the Billings community for many years to come,” Crennen said. “This new branch is a testament to that promise. We are honored to serve the good people of Billings and will continue to look for ways to respond to their individual needs.”
